This is a usual way to handle callback.

I still do not understand your concern,
but if you ban the use of function pointer,
the following is the best I can do
since there are 4 hooks depending on the
combination of oob/raw, write/read.



if (oob) {
if (write)
return nand_change_write_column_op(chip, offset, buf,
len, false);
else
return nand_change_read_column_op(chip, offset, buf,
len, false);
}

if (write)
memcpy(denali->buf + offset, buf, len);
else
memcpy(buf, denali->buf + offset, len);

return 0;




BTW, when are .read_page_raw / .write_page_raw used?

Currently, I use "whole page access && memcpy" for better performance.

If those hooks are rarely used, I use
nand_change_write_column_op / nand_change_read_column_op,
which will reduce the if-conditional.
